I've not investigated too closely, but it seems like there aren't so many pull outs where I've been looking. I was mainly thinking the rest area and campground east of glenwood where the water is brown and slow. most of the rest of the way there's no access....where abouts are you thinking (don't need too many specifics, just not sure what's a pullout with access and what's a waste of time). I'd be happy to catch some non-stocker browns.

Not sure about camping or picnic area....If I recall it is pretty much in town.

And I agree with you that the chances of it being high and off color are very likely in June.

Shore fishing only.
Is that the place where you are likely to see or find some rattle snakes?

I've never run into them there but have heard reports from others that have stumbled across them. Fished the Deschutes River in Oregon tons while I lived in the PNW and never ran into one there either but quite a few other folks have. Maybe the snakes fear me more than I fear them.

I believe you can put float tubes in the lower lake and perhaps the upper lake. The snakes won't bother you there (I think).

if I have a snake run-in in a float tube I will never be in the water again. we've all got our thing and being chicken when it comes to snakes is mine.

Midget Faded Rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus concolor) Venomous Westslope

Click Image for more photos.
Description: The color pattern consists of a pinkish, pale brown, yellow-brown, straw-colored, reddish or yellow-brown ground color, overlaid with a series of brown elliptical or rectangular dorsal blotches. However, most specimens are
gray or silvery. In juveniles the pattern is distinct, but becomes faded in adults, almost to the point where it is indistinguishable from the ground color.

Habitat: Westslope of Colorado in rocky outcrops.

Size: Length up to 29 inches

Diet: Lizards, rodents and small mammals.

Natural History: Little is known about this species, lots of debate regarding hybrids, ongoing genetic testing will sort out a lot. This subspecies possesses the most toxic venom of the C. oreganus / C.viridis group, although there is apparently considerable variability among local populations. It is even one of the most potent venoms found in North America , It is characterized by the presence of a presynaptic neurotoxin, referred to as concolor toxin, the amount of which varies in individual snakes. Species is in need of conservation.
I've seen a couple over the years. Nothing to get excited about.

I've seen a lot of rattlers swimming lakes like WF!
